When traveling, my husband and I love to venture off the beaten path. We want to explore places that tourists aren’t aware of, where the scene is quiet and inviting, and surprise and wonder are waiting to be discovered. The small, fairy-tale feel of medieval villages that sit on the hilltops of Italy’s countryside, surrounded by mystic forests, full of villagers who live a hedonistic artistic life…these are settings and subjects that I could photograph for hours. The trick is to get there at the right time using our camera settings for how to shoot at high noon in Italy!
